Confirmation: 10th Grade

The Confirmation year is one of the most meaningful experiences youth have at WRT. Full of social action, relationship building, and deep conversations with our clergy, the program helps teens to crystallize their Jewish identity, cultivate a sense of responsibility for others and connect with one another and the Jewish people. Programming includes:

  • Weekly learning with the clergy team.
  • Social action projects, such as a visit to the Hebrew Union College soup kitchen in New York.
  • A fall Confirmation retreat to a camp in the Berkshires, which is the central bonding experience of the Confirmation program.
  • The RAC Trip in March to Washington, D.C., a program with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC), where students experience mobilizing around federal, state, and local legislation and meet with congregational leaders.
  • A Confirmation service in the spring.
